    The R8, its much more advanced and relaible. It seems to have a strangle hold on ALMS and Le Mans. Also the R8 stays on the ground <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/wink.gif"></A>

    It is the CLR that flies...
     
  5. Re: This or Audi R8?

    The Audi will be worth more in the long run, but these two are not even in the same class (An LMP900 vs. a car that would probably be in the GTS class). I do believe the Merc. is much prettier but that is one of the things Mercedes had in mind when they designed it. The Audi is a pure racing machine, designed only to go forwards very quickly. The Mercedes on the other hand is a street legal car. It is a difficult desision but I think I'd rather own the Audi. (But if I had the means I would also pick up a CLK-GTR).

    the CLK-GTR was never designed as a road car. It was a race car first and foremost.
     
  7. Re: This or Audi R8?

    hmmmmm, thats tough considering there is no road version of the r8.
     
  8. Re: This or Audi R8?

    i guess i'll take the CLK GTR since the r8 is a prototype
     
  9. Re: This or Audi R8?

    but the CLK GTR is the road version of the Le Mans racer, the CLK LM.
     
  10. Re: This or Audi R8?

    check the CLK-GTR Super Sport for more CLK-GTR action
     
  11. Re: This or Audi R8?

    the race version of this, the CLK LM raced in the GT1 class. a class that allowed cars to compete for outright victory in Le Mans.
     
  12. Re: This or Audi R8?

    i'll take the R8 for the same reasons. BTW, i think the R8 flipped once in ALMS.

    whats bad about a prototype? sure it doesn't have a roof, which in turn causes aerodynamic but u gotta luv open air driving. <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>

    Audi R8 is much faster, and besides, why would it compete against a 3400+lb road car?
     
  16. Re: This or Audi R8?

    This for me. The R8 is probably faster
